Customer Question
He has been vomiting...

He has been vomiting white foam and is shaky when sleeping. I gave his medicine later than usual and he had not eaten in a while.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

He seems to have settled in and is not shaking

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your dog, please?

Which medicine does he receive and why was it prescribed?

I ended up taking him to a vet hospital last night and he has pneumonia from kennel cough. He is doing better and will take some time to get better. Thank you for asking.

Oh my goodness. Thank you for taking the time to let me know. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
